The Pre-Competition in Cyprus continues in the lead up to the 2015 AIDA Individual Depth Championships (#aidaworldchampionship) and athletes continue to shine with no less than 6 new National Record set… and this isn’t even the World Championships yet!

A dust storm that rolls into Cyprus from the Middle East every 3-4 years decided today was the day to make an appearance giving an eerie yellow glow to everything topside.  Despite everything above water looking like it was part of a ghost ship, conditions below water looked spectacular.

  • Guillaume Nery (France) set a Constant Weight (CWT) record of 126m
  • Samo Jeranko (Slovenia) set a Constant Weight (CWT) record of 108m
  • Morgan Bouchis (France) set a Constant Weight No Fins (CNF) record of 90m
